Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ok apart from the mandatory porn collection and wollen sock. 8O

    What are the top ten comfort items required by the modern discerning soldier to make life oh so bearable? :?

    Ideas on a postcard!
  2. Damn :!: Some people need to step away i said step away from the computer screen :!:

    Best throw different angle on this one then. :D

    Sod the infantry dug in upto neck in mud stuff. Lets think comfy i have 240v and my OWP so what else do i need apart from Britneys private number :twisted:
  3. when i was at 7 sig regt, we all knicked the prick throughs from corps lighting and wired them up to these toaster/grill/frying plate things we got from the naafi...great for making bacon banjos.

    and dont forget your 4 tonner, a deep pile carpet, a propper wooden door on the back, some bed steads and chains to make bunk beds suspended from the ceiling, a parafin heater, double skin the canvass truck cover and hey presto! Bliss.

  4. Colour Telly
    Microwave Oven
    Leccy Blanket
    Air Rifle

    All of the above and more sighted 20+ years ago in various tracked and soft skinned Radio Relay wagons.

    Who was responsible for that corp's myth that every second tree in BAOR had a hidden powerpoint.
  5. sat dish/receiver,
    phone charger
    All things found in my Wagon when in bosnia. ED's loved it, for in return for a 16,24 for wagon on its own, they could use all the items
    Hey any fool can be uncomfortable.
  6. Don't forget your laptop with a wifi link to the nearest AP with a 4Mb link (just a pity I have to share the bandwidth with 999 others - doh!). However, with a cantenna in the post I'm sure it won't be long before I can hack into a local broadband link :eek:
